Food Charts and Eating Right!

Tip 100 – Mark off items after each meal by food group. See sample below.

Then add up your totals at the end of the day and see how well you have eaten compares to suggested amounts. List your non-food group items at the bottom to help you stay aware of what you are eating and how important it is to eat for nutrition.

Parenting insight…

Charts are very helpful because they give you a visual picture of what otherwise would be left to memory or another kind of vague impression.

Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.
